Matilda the milkmaid
This sculpture must be the Regent’s Park Arts Frieze most unknown contribution!
Ignored by hordes of Frieze art lovers passing by, it was only being noticed when people spotted me taking photographs…..
Please, I’m thirsty, filthy, no-one loves me…
In 1878 Joseph Durham sculpted this bronze milkmaid. She was the wife of a local churchman.
Nowdays the monument is quite uncared for, & in desperate need of water to bring it life. Very sad.
